Works great.
This timer works great for instrument flight, and has worked flawlessly through about 45 hours of intensive instrument training, with multiple approaches every flight. I initially tried using the rear clip to attach it in a vacant instrument hole in my panel face, which didn't work well. Then I attached it with Velcro to the top center of the panel where it's right in the middle of the six-pack, and that has worked out extremely well. I haven't had to replace the battery yet.

I have a Beechcraft Debonair. Purchased the timer and mounted it on the yoke. Sunlight was hitting on the face of the timer to some extent. Numbers were difficlut to read. I am going to try and find a different timer. Should have made a photograpy of the face of the timer while flying. I will next time I fly. EXM

Breaks too soon
As other reviewers have said the clip on the back needs to be removed. I use it to switch tanks and really loved the idea of the red flashing light. I have purchased two units over the last two years and the red light has failed on both units. So if you are buying for the flashing light forget it. It’s close to being really good but the clip and failed light need to be fixed.

Good timer. Does what I need.
I really like the timer. Simple to use. The screen is large and very readable. The alarm can be heard through my ANR headset and the flashing light catches the eye. Like others have said I would prefer not to have the clip on the back. I broke it off so the back would be flat and then used velcro to attach it to my panel.

gear timer
Bright figures , simple functions must be ok for what it is designed. The clip on the back site should have the possibillity to be removed to enable fitting with adhesive tape.

functions well, but
wanted a compact timer to replace a real old one that was about 1 1/2 by 1 1/2 by 1/4. This one works well but is 2 3/4 by 3 by 3/4 inches and doesn't seem to fit any where, so I am still looking

Acceptable but not great
It works as advertised. I find it hard to mount on the panel. It has a single clip which you can't remove without breaking. I have nowhere to clip it. I attach it with velcro but it's unstable. Plus there is no light on the display so night use is problematic. It works though. I'll figure something out.

Good for Race Cars As Well
I am using Sporty’s Flight Gear Timer as an in-car timer in my race car. Thus far it has worked great! The clip on the back had to be removed so that I could Velcro mount the timer to the dash which I was able to do by removing the back of the case and then disassembling the clip. The big plus on this timer over what I was using is the ability to directly enter the count-down time.

How is this mounted?
A shopper on Sep 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The one I just bought (September 2017) has a plastic clip on the back. It hinges at the top, so it must be able to clip onto to clip onto the top edge of something. I wish there was some way to remove the clip, because it interferes with the Velcro mounting system I prefer.
How to change the batteries? My timer is mounted on the panel with stickies. Does the front snap off?
Robert J K on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The back panel has to be removed to change the batteries. I use velcro to attach it to my panel.
does this take the place of the old flight timer?...with the clock, etc?...
John H on Mar 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is our newest timer.
How do you turn on/off backlight?
I threw the instructions away with packaging
A shopper on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The timer pictured does not have backlighting. Is this the time you have or is it the older one.
How to turn off the timer?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: When not actively counting up/down the timer shuts down in 10 minutes.
Will this timer count above 99 minutes. 99 seconds.? Thanks
Keith E on Mar 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: When the timer reaches 99.99 it will reset to 00.00.
Does the timer have a back light?? Thanks
Keith E on Mar 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it has a back light.
After the countdown timer expires, what happens? I assume it alarms: does the light blink? Does it also start counting up? Both of those are IMHO *very* desirable features.
A shopper on Mar 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have one in my hand, and just tested it. Yes, the light blinks when it times out, and it beeps VERY loudly (a good thing). It does NOT start counting up. It's quite well made, too, but a bit larger than you might expect. I like it.
Will this timer keep track of flying as far as hours in the air?
A shopper on Feb 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it has at count up function.
Two questions:
Can the clip/stand on the back be easily removed?
Does the timer have a memory option, or do you have to reset it each time?
CharlieB on Jan 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The clip/stand is not removable. When the timer reaches the end of the count down you just press the stop/reset and the time will reset to the last count down time that was set.
Can it time separate functions concurrently? IE can I have it run as a fuel timer in the background and then use it to time a hold or such?
A shopper on Oct 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It cannot run separate functions concurrently. It will only count up from zero or count down from a time you select.
How many hours can you count to?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 99
Is there a 24 hour clock function in this timer?
Howard B on Sep 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No clock, only a timer.
Audible alarm shut off. I tossed the instructions and I can't get it to alarm?
